If you’re planning to get a head start on holiday shopping, Black Friday is a great opportunity to snag exclusive deals and deep discounts. “To be a smart shopper on Black Friday, you want to know what you’re looking for going in, where exactly you’re going to find it, and what prices to expect,” Palmer says.

Water may be an essential element of life, but to the scarce microbes that inhabit the Mars-like Atacama Desert in Chile, it's death. Studying the effects of once-in-a-century rainfall in the hyperarid core of the desert, a team of astrobiologists led by Cornell University found that instead of causing a bloom of growth, the unexpected abundance of water killed off three quarters to seven/eighths of the microbe species present...

We've seen more models ship with AMD's Ryzen Mobile as well, and the 8th Generation Core CPUs have been a nice boost over the outgoing 7th Generation models.ADATA Reveals Ultimate SU630 SSD: 3D QLC for SATA
ADATA has introduced its new entry-level SSD for client PCs. The Ultimate SU630 is the first drive from an independent maker of SSDs based on 3D QLC NAND, which is an indicator that the new type of flash memory is finally to the point in terms of production and reliability that companies like ADATA can offer it to their customers, albeit with only a two-year warranty. Notably, the drive is also among the first SATA-based QLC SSDs.
Aimed at entry-level PCs, ADATA’s Ultimate SU630 drives come in a 2.5-inch form-factor and feature 240 GB, 480 GB, and 960 GB configurations. The company says that the Ultimate SU630 SSDs support sequential read performance up to 520 MB/s as well as sequential write performance up to 450 MB/s when pseudo-SLC...The AMD Radeon RX 590 Review, feat. XFX & PowerColor: Polaris Returns (Again)
When AMD launched the Polaris-based Radeon RX 480 in June 2016, the focus was firmly on the mainstream market, looking to offer superior value over raw performance. At the same time, AMD also sought to improve power efficiency by leveraging both microarchitectural changes and their first generation of FinFET GPUs. Ultimately, this straightforward approach was somewhat derailed by the recent cryptocurrency mining craze, but Polaris has carried on, appearing in consoles (Xbox One X and PS4 Pro) as well as an early 2017 refresh in the form of the Radeon RX 500 series. Launching today is the latest entry with new top offering in the RX 500 series: the AMD Radeon RX 590.Best Consumer Hard Drives: Holiday 2018
Data storage requirements have kept increasing over the last several years. While SSDs have taken over the role of the primary drive in most computing systems, hard drives continue to be the storage media of choice in areas dealing with large amount of relatively cold data. Hard drives are also suitable for workloads that are largely sequential and not performance sensitive. SSDs are yet to achieve the low $/GB metric that makes HDDs attractive in that market segment. From a gaming perspective, install sizes of 100s of GBs are not uncommon for modern games. Despite the falling flash prices, high-capacity SSDs still tend to carry a price premium, making hard drives attractive in this market segment. This guide will help readers choose the...SK Hynix Develops First 16 Gb DDR5-5200 Memory Chip, Demos DDR5 RDIMM
SK Hynix on Thursday announced that it had completed development of its first DDR5 memory chip. The new chip offers a capacity of 16 Gb and is said to be the industry’s first DRAM that is fully compliant with the JEDEC standard, which is yet to be published. Meanwhile, mass production of SK Hynix's DDR5 memory chips is slated for 2020.
The new DDR5 chip from SK Hynix supports a 5200 MT/sec/pin data transfer rate, which is 60% faster than the 3200 MT/s rate officially supported by DDR4. Meanwhile the DRAM operates at 1.1 Volts, a 9% decrease in operating voltage. The monolithic 16 Gb chip is made using SK Hynix’s second generation 10 nm-class process technology (also known as 1Ynm), though the company does not disclose its die size and...OWC Announces 14-in-1 Thunderbolt 3 Dock: Now with microSD, 85 W Power Delivery
OWC this week introduced its new flagship Thunderbolt 3 dock, which features 14 ports. Living up to its flagship aspirations, the “one dock to rule them all” can also deliver 85 W of power, giving it enough power to drive a 15.6-inch laptop. When compared to a similar dock launched about a year ago, the new one loses a FireWire port, but gains a microSD slot along with a 10 Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C connector.
Just like its predecessor, the new OWC Thunderbolt 3 14-in-1 dock is aimed at professionals who use laptops, yet also own a high-resolution display (or two) along with multiple peripherals. The key feature of docks with over a dozen of ports is to keep everything — monitors, a keyboard, audio equipment, GbE, external storage, pr...ASUS Comments on Intel Shortages, U.S.-China Trade War
ASUS this week released its financial results for the third quarter of the year, and in the process issued comments regarding two pressing issues: shortages of Intel’s chipsets and processors, as well as the ongoing trade dispute between the U.S. and China. As it turns out, the situation is tough in both cases: tight supply will persist for quarters, whereas the trade feud may force ASUS and other companies to relocate its production facilities from China to other countries.Shortages of Intel CPUs to Persist Through Q2 or Q3 2019

Buy a Sonos Playbar and get a free wall mount and gift cardListen to the money you saved. Right now you can pick up a Sonos Playbar with wall mount and $50 Amazon gift card for just $699, which is the price of the soundbar by itself.

The Playbar is designed to sync with other Sonos speakers or work by itself to bring the sound from your TV to life. Installing it is as simple as connecting a power cord and a cable to your TV and setting it up through the app. The wall mount allows you to easily mount the bar beneath your TV instead of requiring a piece of furniture for it to sit on, and the gift card can be used towards any futur...Create your home theater with Sony's $248 7.2-channel Bluetooth receiverStart here and expand outward.

Android introduces new Wear OS update version "H" with new power save feature
Today, Google Support has released a post announcing the latest version of Wear OS "H". We're not exactly sure what the letter H stands for as we've not seen Google use this sort of naming scheme for Wear OS versions. We've been working on updates to help you get more time out of your #WearOSbyGoogle watch.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 will be a drastically different device from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S9. The phone has been rumored for months and we've only heard that Samsung's next flagship smartphone might have a hole cut-out for a selfie camera. Today, a patent from Samsung depicts possible designs for future models that all adopt the Infinity-O model that Samsung announced during its recent developer conference: this model is a full display with rounded corners and a single circular cutout to let the camera see through the glass. The patent was filed with WIPO (World Intellectual Property...Our Honor 8X video review is up
Huawei and Honor's lineups can be a bit confusing (even for us), with a myriad of devices that have minor differences between them. The Honor 8X mid-ranger is definitely a part of this strategy. It was unveiled in September and it went on sale in China then. Now that it's made its way to international markets, we've put it through our usual intensive review process.

Today Google has announced yet another update for Wear OS (formerly known as Android Wear). It's calling it "H Update" although once you get it your watch won't display that, instead just telling you it's running Wear OS 2.2. It's unclear why this confusing naming was needed, but it is so nevertheless. Anyway, the new software packs a new Battery Saver Mode that will automatically turn on and only display the time once the level falls below 10%. This should further improve battery life, of course. When you're not wearing it, your watch will go into deep sleep mode after 30 minutes...Google Pixel Slate will start shipping well in time for the Holidays
Google will start shipping the Pixel Slate pin two to three weeks, depending on the model. This would pin point the estimated delivery time at as early as December 11.

Supplies of iPhone XR units were pretty slim early on and as usual Apple chose to prioritize carriers in the US. The SIM free option just went live on Apple's site, so if you haven't jumped on T-Mobile's "free" XR offer, you can go skip the new contract. You'll have to pay the full price up front - that's $750 for the 64GB model, $800 for 128GB and $900 for 256GB. Delivery is listed as "1 business day", so an online order should arrive pretty quickly. Or you could pick one up from Apple's retail stores. There are still no official cases for the iPhone XR, Apple is just selling a...Honor Magic 2 teardown: a look at the triple camera and the slider mechanism

The way it's designed is less complicated (which in turn may mean less prone to breaking) than the powered pop-ups of certain other phones that tried to eliminate the selfie camera notch. PC Pop has published a step-by-step disassembly that shows how it's done. Taking apart the Magic 2 starts off as usual - apply heat to unglue the glass back. You can see the metal heat spreader, below that is the brain of the phone. Opening the back of the Honor Magic 2 But before that,...Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium receiving Android 9.0 Pie
A month has passed since we saw the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium on Geekbench running Android 9.0 Pie and now the update is finally rolling out. Screenshots from the System update menu The build number of the new software is 52.0.A.3.84 and interestingly enough, it's just 210MB big. Like the other Xperia phones that got the update last week, the XZ2 Premium won't be getting the gesture-based navigation that usually comes with the Pie, but you can benefit from Xperia XZ3's camera UI. Supposedly, it can also improve the overall camera quality. For now, we don't know what regions are...
